LoveReading View on Oh, If Only ...

Best-selling illustrator Michael Foreman tells a dramatic and action-packed chain-of-events story of what happens when a boy meets a dog with a ball. Young readers will love the ‘if only’ refrain as the boy chases the dog, who chases the ball into some visually dramatic situations before reaching a gloriously satisfyingly ending.


Oh, If Only ... Synopsis

'Oh! If only ...I had stayed home that day ...If only ...I hadn't met that dog ...If only ...he didn't want to play ...'. And so begins a remarkably funny chain of events as one young boy and a dog unwittingly unleash the greatest havoc imaginable.
